Random Ninjas @ Asian Expo - Pomona Fairplex

The last time I saw Random Ninjas, they had a Japanese frontwoman (which fit in with the whole anime theme) and a male bassist.  It was refreshing to see a new lineup with more girl power:  the current much more talented singer, Soozana, and the rocking Agent Katchu on bass.  

The band's performance was seasoned by experience and packed with energy.  They had fun on stage and with the audience.  They even got some old ladies on their feet.  

I thought all their new songs (well, new to me since I hadn't heard them in so long) were great.  I'm glad they expanded from the anime-style songs.  I could hear influences of Linkin Park, 311, and Evanescence (because of Soozana's amazing voice). 

Looking forward to hearing more from them in the future.
